The Brazilian has been a phenomenal figure in all the matches the Hammers have played brilliantly. Expect the versatile attacking player to have a busy day at the office.
The Egyptian had been on a red hot form before going cold in their last match against Leicester City. The Premier League top scorer will once again look to find the net when they lock horns with West Ham.
Liverpool once again faces the possibility of witnessing their lead reduced to just 2 points with Manchester City playing earlier. The Reds has had a terrific season so far but January has seen them slip in quite a few matches with the Foxes coming from behind to snatch the draw at Anfield.
The attacking firepower is likely to be too much to handle for the West Ham defence.
Prediction: West Ham 1-2 Liverpool
